Ben 16

Hi all, managed to sneak in a card this afternoon, its quite a simple card as its for a male , my nephew is 16 on thursday so have to get it in the post, so its not quite what I planned as the stamps I was going to use are still in transit, but they'll save till he's 18 lol.

Spent all morning at the hospital yesturday with my son , who is now out of plaster so now all the shouting and tears come next until we get him back to being mobile but his foot is a better shape, and as long as he isn't in any pain when all the swelling etc has completely gone I'll be happy.

Back to my card sorry digressing again. The sketch is from the challenge at sunday sketch and stamp#23, for a boys card I think it works quite well, might have a play with it for a girly one as I think it could look so different.

I had a lovely comment left on one of my posts telling me about a new challenge , Just scraps, they are on thier second challenge but I'm sure they'd love you all to pop along and join in. Their theme this week is black, white and red, perfect for a boy.

Die cut dreams have a theme of no flowers, the perfect oppourtunity to make a boys card!

Kaboodle doodle have a happy birthday theme so I shallbe entering their challenge too.

Quirky cards has a challenge that runs for 2 weeks and this time the theme is to use buttons, and I have plenty of them so I am off to enter that challenge too.

Oh the sun has finally decided to get up and the sky is clear blue, looks like another fine but cold day ahead.

Creative inspirations want us to make a male card this time, I love it when there are so many challenges that I can enter for a card that I am making anyway, its as if fate takes a hand don't ya think?

Oh well better hurry as I'll have to go and get Andrew up soon as he wants to do some spanish before his teacher comes at 9 and the house looks like an obstacle course with all the equipment we have and moved around yesturday. Can't wait to get Andrew moving then he will beable to have his bed back upstairs and I can give my living room a really good spring clean, and it will be better for him too .
